Synopsis: Carl a young energetic and somewhat obnoxious professional one day decides to ridicule a homeless man while he and some of his co-workers were out of the office on their lunch break. Although some of them did not approve of what he did their words fell on deaf ears.

Later that evening as he was telling his friends what had happened his best friend decided to share with Carl some of the things that had happened to him during his own bouts with homelessness. Although Carl sympathized with his friend he was still not willing to apologize to the man or admit to the error of his ways until one day he sees a homeless man frozen to death in an abandoned car in the parking lot.

That is when Carl’s life began to change. He later becomes friends with the same homeless man that he embarrassed. The homeless man then teaches him that self-worth has nothing to do with material possessions.
